Alec has lived in the Harrogate area for most of his adult life, and is keen to see the region grow, in a sustainable way, and that was his reasoning behind getting involved.

Alec said: “Having spoken at length to Chamber President Sue Kramer, it was clear that she wanted to embed sustainability into the Chamber's ethos and that of its members, so I was happy to accept the invitation to be on the team”

Sue Kramer said: "As business owners, we all need to do our bit to be greener and run more sustainable businesses, but sometimes it’s a bit daunting to know what to do and where to turn for advice.

"Having Alec on the Chamber’s management team, representing the Coalition, will not only help us give our members some of the guidance they need, but will ensure our goals are in alignment with the Climate Coalition.”
